thanks to dianne feinstein and this report to stake a claim right before the second obama term begins that, perhaps, this is something to start fighting on again. and the fact it's happening during the defense authorization debate sort of seems like an interesting marker to get that off on perhaps a new footing. >> i wonder if you sense on the issues of national security that you cover if there's been a change in resolve on the democratic side. we've seen fights over issues like this for the past 4, 8, 10, 12 years. but i feel like when i talk to democrats about these issues now, when we see democrats talk about these things in the media, they're sort of starting to treat these types of fights like the stupid ground zero mosque fight or some other conspiratorial right wing nonsense fight. there seems to be new resolve on the part of the democrats and maybe on the part of the president that they're not going to lose fights when the other side's argument is really dumb. >> i think you're right about that. on the other hand, never underestimate the spinelessness of a democrat. so, you kn
conspiracy theory. you can clearly see a pair of boxing gloves sitting in the background right behind the president. is the white house trying to show the american people that president obama knocked mitt romney out in this election? did they do this on purpose? we'll never know. but maybe louie gohmert can help us out. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. good evening, rachel. >>> we will know that is the case if we find some kind of mexican wrestling mask in the next pete sousa photo from the white house. then we'll know they're sending a message. >> thanks, raching. >> thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. okay. last year in the former soviet republic of georgia, which to refresh your memory is here sort of wedged into a port of the world called eurasia, in his struggling young nation of georgia, a 75-year-old grandmother was out looking for scrap metal and she happened by some dark miracle she happened upon the cable that connects much of that region to the outside world. the cable that she found when she was looking for scrap
. the cause for all the concern right now including the statements from president obama and secretary clinton is the reports from this weekend. reports from this weekend quoting intelligence sources saying there was "heightened activity at some of syria's chemical weapons sites." raising the prospect that the government might feel like they are losing the war they are fighting with conventional weapons and may be looking to their chemical weapons supplies out of desperation. there's no reason to be alarmist about this going on, but this is also alarming enough now that it makes sense to be paying attention and paying attention closely. and toward that end, i want to highlight one other detail of the story. the last time the international community noticed unusual activity around syria's chemical weapons site, the last time the world freaked out that maybe the syrians were going to gas their own people, the last time this happened was in july. and in july this is who stood up for the syrian government and said, don't worry t will never happen. >> any unconventional weapon that the public posse
at the united nations and is also president obama. there have been far right conspiracy theories about the united nations as long as we have had both the united nations and far right hysterics. but today the far right got loose in the united states senate. it seems to have freaked out even some of the republican party. and that story is next. >>> we will rise. >> today's protest took place this morning. the american public transit association is holding their annual convention. >> i don't care if you're in a wheelchair. you don't run into me. >> they were seeking a man day-to-day for all cities with a public transit system to install wheelchair access. the association opposes this plan. >> they insisted on taking the train or the bus even when the law said they had no such right. except for their bravery that led them to take that stand, they were just regular people. jack warren, who was hauled by police off a city bus on may 19th, 1986. he was hauled off that bus and arrested for the crime of insisting that he should be allowed to ride with everybody else. even though he had a disabi
me to talk about the fiscal cliff. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> good evening, ed. thank you. thanks to you at home for staying with us. if you get a tweet from president obama, you will know it by his signature. the president has an official twitter account from which all sorts of on message things get tweeted. but the white house says you know when a tweet has been written by the president himself because in that case the tweet gets a little initial signature. a "bo" in lower case. barack obama, as in i the president wrote this tweet. if it was a dog, it would be the paw print. the president was writing his own tweet this is afternoon. the string of twitter messages about the budget negotiations in washington. the white house announcing in advance today that the president himself would be answering people's questions about the negotiations in washington. he would be answering them directly on twit ter starting a 2:00 p.m. eastern. it is kind of awesome that regular people can ask direct questions from the leader of the free world. it's like a town hall but you do

by the antichrist who works at the united nations and is also president obama. there have been far right conspiracy theories about the united nations as long as we have had both the united nations and far right hysterics. but today the far right got loose in the united states senate. it seems to have freaked out even some of the republican party. and that story is next. a hybrid? most are just no fun to drive. now, here's one that will make you feel alive. meet the five-passenger ford c-max hybrid. c-max says ha. c-max says wheeee. which is what you get, don't you see? cause c-max has lots more horsepower than prius v, a hybrid that c-max also bests in mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. you'll also care about our new offer. you get access to nurses who can help with your questions. and your loved one can get exelon patch free for 30 days. if the doctor feels it's right for them. it cannot change how the disease progresses. hospitalization and rarely death have been reported in patients who wore more than one patch at a time. the most common side effects of exelon patch are nau
for them to do so. the current president, president obama, put a stop to that right when he took office. we do not do that anymore. some things we stop doing. some things that we were told, yeah, maybe this is unprecedented, maybe this doesn't seem like the thing america does, but we have to do it. some of those things from the past decade are things that we have stopped doing. that said, some of the things we still are doing are still pretty hard to get your head around. we're still fighting the longest war in u.s. history and it apparently still has two-plus years on the clock unless the president speeds up his withdrawal plan. it's the longest war in u.s. history. at the same time as another one of the longest wars in u.s. history. if you told anybody in advance of that plan that that's how our country would spend the first decade plus of the 21st century, you would have been laughed at. before we started doing it, you could not have convinced anyone that after we closed our secret prisons in places like romania, and poland, we would still keep one offshore prison in a nearby communist c
it is right now. and a big reason for that, the reason medicare looks to be fairly sustainable right now is because we just passed that law. you've probably heard of it, called the affordable care act. health reform, obama care, which the republicans, let us remember, fought tooth and nail, and which spends most of its infamous 2,000 pages, throwing a whole bunch of different solutions at the actual underlying problem, that is driving the medicare cost problem, which is the cost of the rise in the growth of health care costs in general. that very controversial bill that the president and democrat spent just about every last scent of political capital on is designed to change the delivery of health care in all kinds of ways to slow the growth of spending on health care. almost none of these changes have been fully implemented yet. and that's what's going to happen in the next few years. they will be implemented. and rather than waiting until the affordable care act is fully implemented, waiting to see what's going to work in terms of cutting costs, republicans are trying to use this prefa
than anybody else in history. the data-driven, high-tech system of contact with voters that the obama campaign built up is how this president earned both his terms in the white house. so on the one hand, what the president is doing right here is sort of old news. presidents asking the public to bring the campaign beyond the election, to get their sfoerters involved in achieving the policy they want. on the one hand, presidents do that. this has been done before. this president in particular has done it a lot. on the other hand, after this re-election campaign, this may be tote little uncharted territory. nobody has ever had the kind of high-tech, robust connection to the individual human americans who voted for them that this president has. technology has afforded this president an ability that we have not seen before in terms of how it plays out in american politics. what remains to be seen is what he is able to do with that. joining us now gene robinson, an msnbc political analyst. great to see you. thanks for being here. >> great to be here, rachel. >> what do you think of the pres
